of chicago. this year, now president obama addressed the same issue at his second inauguration. >> obama: our journey is not complete until all of our children from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lanes of newtown know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> jennifer: sadly our children are not safe from harm. in fact, a 15-year-old girl who performed at that inauguration was killed yesterday by a shooter in chicago. she was shot in the back as she huddled under a canopy in a park seeking protection from a rain storm. she was only a mile from the president's home on chicago's south side. unbelievable. and from the streets of chicago to the halls of congress the debate continued today as wayne lapierre testified in senate hearings on gun violence. a question to wayne lapierre, dick durbin pointed directly to chuck's gun store. >> purchasers buy the guns there and they end up in the hands of criminals in chicago. we have to put an end to this. mr. lapierre some of your colleagues tell me senator you don't get t

up for a research project on long-term football health risks. this past weekend president obama weighed in on the issue, quote, i'm a big football fan, but if i had a son, i'd have to think long and hard before i let him play football. i think those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact it's going to change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence. harvard researchers say on average the life span of a football player is 20 years shorter than that of the average american man. nfl players and families have 5500 concussion-related lawsuits pending in the league. one, the family of junior seau. seau was diagnosed with cte, a degenerative brain disease. two other football legends committed suicide last year, david duerson shot himself in the chest, leaving a note requesting his brain be used for research and described his condition saying, his brain was falling off. his wife said he couldn't remember things from five minutes ago. joining the panel now is democratic congressman bill pascrell of new jersey and from boston, co-director of the center

of the start of his second term, president obama announced that he would spend this term at least in part on an issue commonly believed to be among the heaviest lifts in all of american politics. he said he would do something about gun violence. now the president can create certain changes by himself with his executive authority. he can make changes, not laws. he cannot change laws, but he can change things that the administration is responsible for itself. for big changes, though, for real reform, the president needs congress to pass new laws, and that's where the real political heavy lifting comes in. to do that political heavy lifting, the white house announced a new political strategy, or at least a new political tactic to try to get this done. the 2012 obama/biden reelection campaign would morph itself into an advocacy group, a powerful democratic grassroots activism machine. the old campaign would transfer to this new group its vast database of information about obama supporters, about voters. and then the new group would mobilize supporters to mobilize the president's agenda now, t
